Project Summary

Eleanor's thesis is centred on the concept of the ‘postal body’ in nineteenth-century literature. More specifically, this work will use mobility theory as a foundation with which to reveal a complex system of information exchange through the nineteenth-century Post Office, and the ways in which this becomes embodied within literary imagination.
